Continuing Education Board defines a conflict of interest as any financial or
non-financial consideration or relationship relevant to course content that
compromises or has the potential to compromise professional judgment. Providers
of events approved for ASHA CEUs must identify and disclose to participants any
such interest on the part of any speaker or instructor.*Having
a disclosable financial or non-financial relationship does not prevent you from
speaking. Disclosing such relationships is intended to give Convention
attendees a more complete context in which to consider the information you
provide. As a general guideline, err on the side of disclosure.
All CSHA presenters are required to complete the disclosure questions in order to be considered for presentation. New requirements from ASHA’s Continuing Education board required practices for all providers of ASHA continuing education. The most substantial addition is known as Requirement 3: Transparency in Course Planning, Delivery, and Marketing, which took effect in 2012. Designed to promote transparency in the design, development, and presentation of courses offered for ASHA CEUs, the requirement aligns ASHA with current practices among other professions, particularly in the continuing medical education arena. As a result, everyone submitting a presentation, or listed as an author for a presentation for consideration at an ASHA event, is required to complete a disclosure indicating any financial or non-financial relationship related to the content of the proposed session.
For more information or inquiries regarding the Call for Proposals, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (916) 921-1568. We look forward to seeing you at the Annual CSHA Convention & Exhibition, March 22-25, 2018 in Sacramento, CA.
